Holidaying trainer Robert Heathcote hopes to celebrate with a few coronas and a couple of shots of tequila in Mexico if he can claim the Swiss Ace Plate at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday.
Heathcote has talented sprinters Prince Of Boom and The Big Goodbye in the event.
Heathcote darted off on a 12-day golfing break to Mexico last week and missed watching Extremist win the Listed Keith Noud Stakes at Doomben last Saturday.
“I’m very fortunate and proud to be able to take a holiday as I’ve got such good staff back home,” Heathcote said from Mexico.
“I’m on a golfing vacation which was organised by a few mates 12 months ago.
“I played golf at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles on the way here and it was the highlight of my golfing career.”
